City Network, a European provider of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) built on OpenStack, headquartered in Sweden, has announced an expansion in Asia. As of January 1, 2017, the company will launch a node for its IaaS City Cloud in Tokyo.
Through its IaaS City Cloud customers would be able to comply with demands originating from specific laws and regulations concerning auditing, reputability, data handling and data security such as Basel and Solvency. City Network’s data centers are certified according to ISO 9001, 14001, 27001, 27015 and 27018 – internationally recognized standards for quality, sustainability and information security.
“We now continue our strategy of providing City Cloud on a global market,” said Johan Christenson, CEO and founder of City Network. ‘Asia is an incredibly important market for most European companies. With the on-going digital transformation, European companies to a large extent need a stable and scalable infrastructure service also in this part of the world.”
Jonathan Bryce, CEO of OpenStack Foundation, the community behind OpenStack, commented on the news in connection to OpenStack Summit in Barcelona starting today.
“We are seeing dramatic growth of OpenStack-based applications worldwide, and APAC is leading the way, said Jonathan Bryce. “Public clouds powered by OpenStack are an important element of that growth, and City Network is a great example of how vendors are supporting that growth with their expansion into the Japan market.”
